CALL Network

Church Action on Labour and Life (CALL) Network

CALL is a Europe-wide network working closely with CEC to address employment and related economic and social issues from the perspective of Christian theology and a Christian way of life. It seeks to promote a Christian viewpoint in debates about European economic and social policies.

CALL carries out:

  • Campaigning on economic and employment issues in Europe
  • Networking on economic and employment issues in Europe
  • Exchanging expertise among members
  • Empowering people on economic and employment issues

The CALL coordination team currently addresses the effects of digitalisation on society and the workplace, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Members of the CALL coordination team come from CEC Member Churches in France, Sweden, Finland, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Italy, Greece and Germany and meet regularly via virtual meetings.

In June 2020, CALL issued a statement titled “Digitalisation and the future of work and social relations: Social and climate-friendly choices are timely”. The statement is also available in German and Italian.  This statement follows the work of a CALL Network Conference in Berlin on “Digitalisation and the Future of Work and Social Relations, held in 2018.”
